COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This IPA will “wow” those tastebuds and wake up your nose! Fruitiness in the aroma and a mango-like finish from the NZ Nelson hops used are sure to get you to believe in fate!

Fair brew, little cloudy, actullay real cloudy, not from hops but white stuff, may be yeast???? Aroma of bread and hops, distracting but not too bad. Taste ok not sour but just OK.

Type: 22-oz. bottle Glass: 0.5L (16.9 oz.) glass From: Costco in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif. Price: $5.79 Purchased: Aug. 26, 2014 Consumed: Sept. 3, 2014 Misc.: Welp. The top of the bottle near the twist off broke when I popped the cap, but decided to try it anyway. Poured a caramel. Orange, slightly murky color with three fingers of khaki cream rocky head. Great foamy layered lacing along the sides of the glass all the way down. Great retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 4.40) Smelled a pleasant whiff of citrus hops, New Zealand hops, floral hops, resin hops, caramel, mango and tangerine rind. (Smell - 4.14) Tasted not quite as good as the nose, but good nonetheless. Booziness in there for sure. Got New Zealand hops, bitter alcohol, resin, rye hops, citrus hops, floral hops, caramel, Columbus hops (I think), mango, tropical hops and tangerine. (Taste - 4.00) Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.84) Really liked this beer. Would love to have it again. (Overall - 4.10) 4.05 91 A-

Thanks Willy J. Pours clear light orange with a reddish hue, off white fluffy head. Aroma is full of earth, moss, pine hop. Medium sweet, some gooey fruits mixed with floral booziness & bread. Medium body, sort of gooey mouthfeel.

jbruner (2317) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle shared thanks to scotchzi at Proof happy hour! Pours a hazy golden orange with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is great, fruity citrus zest, floral resinous hops. Taste falls a little short of the nose, more of the biscuit malt comes through than I would want. Good carbonation, nice, but wanted more from the flavor.

Bottled, 22oz bomber. Color is medium gold, clarity is slightly hazy. Medium carbonation and a thin head. Nose is full of mango, orange rind, slight pine sap and lemon cake. Flavor seems to be lacking some of what the aroma offers, however it is clean and simple. Orange and lemon flavors dominate. Bitterness is very short-lived with almost no residual in the nose after sipping. Easy to drink.

tiong (3771) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2014
650ml bottle from Saveur-biere.com

Pours dark orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of crisp malts, caramel, tropical fruits, lemon, citrus and grapefruit. Taste is smooth, crisp and malty with some herbal notes, tropical fruitness and grassy bitterness. Finish is bitter, herbal hoppy, tropical fruity and grassy with some citrus, grapefruit and crisp maltiness. Pretty good and balanced.

TET (1648) - FINLAND - JUL 12, 2014
A orange-yellow beer with a dense, big and blond head. The nose is great and tropical, papaiyas, mangos, lychee and some mandarin. Taste is tropical fruity, mangos, citrusfruits, nice fructose, the end is slightly piney. The medium bitterness evolving slowly. Medium bodied, pleasant to drink, almost velvety in the mouth. This beer was totally surprise for me. Very aromatic, great smoothness and still great bitterness. Huge IPA.

olio (6194) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2014
65 cl bottle. No freshness info.
Pours clear dark golden-copper color with a large head. Very pleasant hoppy aroma with slightly sweetish caramel malts and tropical fruits, some resin and pine needles appear also. Bitter fruity palate, resinous hops and orange on the flavor, slight grapefruit notes, caramel malts and faint hints of gooseberries. Alcohol doesn’t really play any role here, feels very fresh and the balance is good. A very solid IPA.

Gription79 (2263) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Huge grassy hop notes that overwhelm everything else. The malts are a bit harsh and astringent. Some fruity hop notes in the finish.
